PCA Goes to ArtPrize

PCA secondary art students had the opportunity to experience ArtPrize in Grand Rapids on Thursday, September 28, 2017. According to the ArtPrize website, “ArtPrize is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place for 19 days each fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan. More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which include a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.Any artist working in any medium from anywhere in the world can participate. Art is exhibited throughout downtown Grand Rapids—museums, public parks, restaurants, theaters, hotels, bridges, laundromats, auto body shops, vacant storefronts and office spaces.”

PCA believes that this trip is extremely valuable for our art students. According to Secondary Art Teacher, Mike Costello, “It was a great day all around – from lunch at the food trucks, hands-on art, and seeing so much. The best part was meeting a few of the artists face-to-face. We met the sculptor of a fantastic metal eagle and a woman from New Orleans who had an entire room at a gallery that was dedicated to her art. Her work brought awareness to the extinction of bird species in a very unique way.”
